When you lift a solid axle that has a pan hard bar (aka track bar), depending on the lift height, the angle of that pan hard bar becomes so steep, that any natural cycling of the axle will cause a feeling of being unstable. The reason for this is the pan hard bar being so angled, it forces the axle to swing left and right under the vehicle vs the axle cycling up and down.
To remedy this issue, you want to raise ( or lower frame side ) the pivot point on the axle so that the pan hard bar is parallel or as close to parallel to the ground / axle. With the pan hard bar in this configuration , the natural cycling of up and down is returned ( for the most part , once you start to add a lot more travel ie long travel , things start to swing out again. Regardless , this will still be beneficial to having vs not having ).
In this market, there has only really been one option for this Toyota / Lexus market. It’s a weld on version. This new option opens up the market to allow one to easily install it themselves with simple common tools. Not everyone has access to a welder or even access to some one that can weld. With that said , you are still basically relying on the weld/ welder knowing what he’s doing by welding on a thicker piece of metal to the top of a thinner wall metal and In hopes of it not failing. For the most part , it will not fail but All the load is being spread only along the weld.
This new bolt on pan-hard correction kit is designed with strength in mind. The way it is designed, wrapped around , thick wing nut inside the oem bracket , the load is evenly distributed along the whole oem mount and not just the top where the welds are at. On top of that you can easily toss in Some small spot welds if you are that guy that just needs it. This thing is easily installed and or removed for whatever reason. Just being bolted on and toque down, it’s stronger then the weld on version. Also why pay $100 for a bracket that you still need to pay another $100 to have welded on and still have the feeling of “ is it going to hold up?”.
